Tohono O'odham Nation opposes state anti-immigration law
The Tohono O'odham Nation passed a resolution against SB1070, Arizona's controversial anti-immigration law.

The tribe says the law encourages racial profiling of its members and will infringe on the rights of its members. Some members lack documentation of their U.S. citizenship and do not speak English.

"Its going to specifically put members of the O'odham Nation at risk because of their inability to document their citizenship because they were born in some remote village some 60-70 years ago, or under a tree and don't have record of their birth," Chairman Ned Norris Jr. told KVOA-TV.

SB1070 allows law enforcement to ask people about their immigration status. Tribal enrollment cards or tribal identification can be produced in response to a query.
